Peace of God - Thought of the Day - Dec 24/08
« on: December 25, 2008, 01:25:26 AM »
Christmas Brings the Peace of God
by Rick Warren


You will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6 (NLT)
*** *** *** ***
Once you make peace with God, that’s spiritual peace, then you get the peace of God in your heart and that’s emotional peace.
This is the one you really need for daily living. The peace of God happens in your heart when you’ve made peace with God. All of a sudden, the stress in your life goes down. You’re not as angry as you used to be. Things don’t bother you as much. You’re a lot more patient. You’re filled with a lot more love and peace.
Why? Because once you have peace with God, you have the peace of God in your heart.
The Bible says, “Don’t worry about anything. Instead pray about everything” (Philippians 4:6 NLT). You have two choices in life: You can pray or panic, worship or worry. Those are your choices. Worry has never solved a single one of your problems. If you prayed as much as you worry, you would have a lot less to worry about! Prayer can change things. That’s why the Bible says, “Don’t worry. Pray!”
“Pray about everything. Tell God what you need. Thank him for all that he’s done. [And if you do this] You will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6 NLT).

I had a hard evening without my kids.  It is so hard to be away from loved ones.  They got lots of prayers and tears tonight.

I am always reminding myself that “Don’t worry about anything. Instead pray about everything” (Philippians 4:6 NLT). (even through the tears).

Praying with you, Storm! Stay the course, the road that leads to God is full of hardships and every chance he gets 'our adversary the Devil will try and bring you down'. [1 Peter 5:8]

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him." James 1:12

God bless you!

Mark
God Bless,
